Summary: this is a great pc ,, it comes with windows 8 but if you know what your doing it can be downgraded to windows 7 , i cant stand windows 8, so i downgraded to windows 7 with out any problems , this is a must buy pc ,, if u need to upgrade from a old pc or if u need a new pc in general,,
Summary: I bought one of these about 8 months ago and I've never had a serious problem with it. I found it odd that they include 10 gigs of ram on this system, but no complaints (would have expected it to be 8 or 16). The included graphics card plays most games on medium-high graphics at a decent framerate. I upgraded the graphics card to a new r9-270x and put in a new 600 watt power supply, works great. Easy to upgrade, just access the BIOS and enable legacy boot.
Summary: We actually bought two of these (his and hers) late last year. They replaced a 10 year old HP and a 10 year old Dell XPS Gen V, both running XP. The new machines are delightlfully quiet and responsive (upgraded both to 24 G of RAM). Did the Windows 8.1 update immediately. Use is for surfing, some work (Microsoft Office suite), photography (image proecessing), watching TV (live video streaming from stations we don't get on cable, like the news from our other home, Miami).

Summary: I bought this PC from Best Buy last summer and I absolutely love the thing! I use it for video projects mostly as well as usual browsing, etc. I have had nothing but great experiences with the it. The CyberLink PowerDirector editing software works wonderfully and is easy to use! Rendering is so fast!

Summary: I really like this computer, so far I've had no problems with it in the last two weeks. The computer runs really fast, and it runs very quite. I have been playing a bunch of old battlefield games on this computer with no issues. I have not played any newer games on the computer yet to test out the video card, but so far the computer has preformed just fine. The computer never seems to work very hard, even when I have several programs running at the same time.
Summary: Have had this for about a month...It has required a complete restore twice in that time. In addition it won't stay connected to our wireless network - two laptops, our phones and two kindles have no trouble staying connected so the problem isn't the wireless router. When it disconnects from the network the only solution is to restart the computer.
